Welcome to my Spark page. Intention is my word for 2016. I need to make some changes in my health this year, this month, this week, today, and through intentional yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily goal planning, I am going to make those changes happen in 2016. I hope you will join me in intentionally making yours goals and dreams happen in 2016.

Dream big and dare to fail!

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.

Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there!!

    I love that spark soup goodie...JUST what I need. Actually I do need to eat something. Haven't had ANY appetite whatsoever for the last two days. Yesterday I ate an orange..that was it other than water with a little orange juice poured in.

    I know I need to eat a little something today...but so far I'm not feeling it~ emoticon I must admit...this is a very weird feeling for me not to want to eat! emoticon

    But I'm listening to my body and it will tell me when things are better and I need food to sustain me. I'm making a fresh tomatoe basil soup just in case I get hungry later on.

    We'll see how this progresses...I'm down 8 pounds so I'm loving that! emoticon

    This just may be the kickstart I need to encourage me to keep losing! It's a weird kick start but I'll take it~ emoticon emoticon

    I see you are losing also sweet friend...I'm SO proud of you don't EVER give up on your beautiful self! EVER!! emoticon

    Thanks for the engagement wishes, Margaret! I have been so busy with the wedding preparations that I haven't had a lot of time for other things, but I plan to get involved in the challenges again this winter. I hope things are going well with you!

    Wowie...I SO love those boxing gloves...I'll need them for sure next Wednesday on the 29th! Please send your most powerful prayers for that court date.

    The thought of losing our beautiful home is truly terrifying to me! Especially when we did EVERYTHING right to comply with the bank and all of the hoops they continually jumped us through.

    We will still have options if Wednesday doesn't go much as I want it to...I have to be prepared for the worst.

    I'm so thankful that I have you for such a wonderful friend of mine! I hope you are happy and doing well this summer. How are the boys...I know how much joy they give you and that makes me so happy! emoticon
